    “Top House was fantastic.”

    Great space both indoors and outdoors and all the mod cons. We could have happily spent the week lazily lounging in the house and gardens, though also some beautiful countryside just on the doorstep.

About the location


Wem 5 miles; Ellesmere 6 miles.

The small, scattered village of Northwood nestles between the pretty Shropshire market towns of Wem and Ellesmere, and consists of a handful of houses and an excellent pub with adjoining restaurant. Historic Wem, home of the infamous Jeffrey's “the hanging” Judge and renowned for its real ales and the modern Sweet Pea flower, has provided a central point for local trade since Saxon times and its weekly market still holds this tradition, attracting visitors from across the county. The beautiful town of Ellesmere, with its Medieval streets littered with Georgian and Victorian houses and quaint, half-timbered buildings, is situated just 6 miles away, amidst an area known as Shropshire's Lakeland, and offers an abundance of shops, pubs and fine restaurants. Take a boat trip across the magnificent glacial mere out onto the Llangollen Canal or enjoy a leisurely stroll through the picturesque Aboretum and Cremorne Gardens with its wonderful wildlife and scenic walks. Stokesay Castle, medieval Shrewsbury and Ludlow and the fascinating museums at Ironbridge are all within easy reach. A lovely location, with something for everyone.
